    Hi, guys,

    Thought to update some numbers on IBC.

    y/y operating income (loss) comparisom excluding restructuring/impairment costs:

    4 wks ending 5/5/07...($1.0m) vs 4 wks ending 4/29/06...($9.8m)
    4 wks ending 4/7/07...($7.4m) vs 4 wks ending 4/1/06...($23.1m)
    4 wks ending 3/10/07..($9.6m) vs 4 wks ending 3/4/06..($29.7m)

    I know the financial is shot, still...

    Have a nice weekend, Sam

    • Hi, JCH,

      The latest monthly number was a disappointment even taking into account of back-to-school reversal. I can't see how it deteriorate so fast esp. that gross margin held up oh kay.

      Also beware that more loss would be incurred as it revamp the delivery structure. It already lost more than 1/4 of a billion dollars since filing chapter 11. That would come most out of the pocket of existing shareholders, I think.

      The events that follows can be both rapid and dramatic. Hang tight.

      Best, Sam

    • I looked at some of the sec filings to get a sense of how things are going. It seems like the most important question is how much of the company the common stockholders will get after the company emerges from bankruptcy. Do you have any guesses in that direction?

      I saw your comment Re: ANSW. I have some background with online advertising, probably just enough to be dangerous. But if I can help you out, drop me a note here or send me an email.

      • Thank you, Agatesystems, for the note and offer.
        I expect existing shareholder to retain 1/3 ownership and I also expect to participate in possible recap such as rights offering. I'd be disappointed if it dilutes more than that.
        As to ANSW, I am still fumbling thru the field. I thought it a shoe-in by just looking at the financial progress...It appeared that most of the increase in top line flows easily to the bottom. Now, it's a different ball game.
        Thanks again, and good day.
        Best, Sam

    • Good morning, friends,

      • Greetings, all,

        It's bloody out there, isn't it?

        I know this is not for most people, but FWIW,

        Per my previous post:

        y/y operating income (loss) comparisom excluding restructuring/impairment costs:

        4 wks ending 5/5/07...($1.0m) vs 4 wks ending 4/29/06...($9.8m)
        4 wks ending 4/7/07...($7.4m) vs 4 wks ending 4/1/06...($23.1m)
        4 wks ending 3/10/07..($9.6m) vs 4 wks ending 3/4/06..($29.7m)

        Update:

        4 wks ending 6/2/07...($1.8m)
        4 wks ending 6/30/07... $2.9m (finally!)

        I won't say IBC is finally out of the woods. Because Summer's been the strongest months of the year, it may start to receed in absolute term. Also note that the above did not count the restructuring costs or other one time charges which countinues to drain the company. For the latest period, it costed $1.8m, that gave the net operating income of $1.1m. Time is running really tight now.

        Best, Sam
